    I just finished this and just wanted some feedback on it. I dont know if it is at all possible for a caddis to have the case stuck to it. It was just a thought. I'm not sure if this can really take place. When I tied this I was thinking of when the caddis is comming out of its case and started to drift free........is this possible?

    I'll take a couple dozen too! :cool:

    Also, can you post the materials you used, hook size(s)? Can't tell what you used for the body in particular. Looks like a quick tie and a good pattern!

    no its not possible because the caddis larvae has to becaome a pupae first. now if you were thinking of the case being stuck to the emerging pupae then it might be possible. if it does happen then it is an extremely rare occurance. caddis dont just go from larve to adult

    Thats what I was invisioning. If the case should get stuck to the emerging pupae. I know it would be rare, but how rare.:p
